Empty teacher's deskA respected think tank is helping parents and their children with a new source: Providing numerous resources for educating from home.

The Heritage Foundation has created a new web page, the Curriculum Resource Initiative, to help parents who have found themselves confined to home during the coronavirus outbreak. The site offers everything from history lessons from Hillsdale College to math, Spanish, and grammar lessons from Prodigy Math, No Red Ink, and many, many other websites.

Education Week reported in mid-March that public schools had closed in 33 states, affecting 64,000 nearly 33 million students, and that number has likely skyrocketed in recent weeks.

Heritage spokesperson Lindsey Burke, the think tank’s education analyst, was asked her prediction for future education in light of the home-bound schooling that is taking place at the moment.  

"I don't think that we will see long-term, just massive, massive increases, or a large-scale disruption, to the traditional sort of mode of school delivery.  I think it's going to be somewhere in the middle,” she predicts.

Referring to the numerous online sources, Burke says virtual visits to museums, including the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., the Guggenheim Museum in New York City, and 2,500 other museums that have partnered with Google to make their art and virtual tours available online.
